A tragic story made headlines earlier in the week after a massive crocodile ate a woman. The incident happened at an Indonesian facility where the crocodile was being kept illegally as a pet.
"Deasy Tuwo, 44, the head of a laboratory at a pearl farm in North Sulawesi, was feeding the crocodile in its enclosure on Jan. 10 when she was killed by the 1,500-pound reptile. It was not immediately clear if she fell in the enclosure or if she was dragged by the animal. Police are investigating the incident," reported Fox News.
The crocodile pulled Deasy into the enclosure where she was killed. Her body was found the next day by co-workers who noticed something strange inside the crocodile's pen.
"The crocodile was sedated and removed from the enclosure. Merry will be moved to a conservation area, Hendrik Rundengan from the North Sulawesi Natural Resources Conservation Agency said. Police are reportedly still trying to get hold of the alleged owner of the reptile," reported Fox.
Officials stated that they had tried to remove the croc in the past but had not been allowed into the facility. The story may have never occurred if the crocodile had been removed and not held as a pet.
"The Indonesian archipelago has several species of crocodiles that kill humans. About 1,000 people a year are killed by crocodiles around the world," reported Fox.
